SHOT Show Start to Finish in Ninety-Six Seconds

SHOT Show 2012 Las VegasIf you’ve never visited SHOT Show, you may not know what a huge operation it represents. Filling the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas with 1600 exhibits covering 630,000 square feet is like building a small indoor city from scratch. Starting from bare floors and walls, workers labor furiously to assemble 1600+ booths before Show attendees storm the gates. And then, a few days later, all those exhibits must be torn down, boxed up, and shipped out. It’s a Herculean task. And here, with the aid of time-lapse photography, you can experience the entire SHOT Show in just 96 seconds.

In this short video filmed at SHOT Show 2012, time-lapse photography is used to compress the entire SHOT Show into one 96-second montage. Watch a small section of the Show floor from start to finish (including prep time) at this year’s event. It’s a fun video to watch — you can “experience” an entire Show day in a mere 10 seconds. For example, Tuesday starts at the 0:33 second mark and Wednesday begins just 10 seconds (of video time) later. Appropriately, the soundtrack is “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Amazing Yosemite Time-Lapse Video — Nature’s Showcase

Spectacular YosemitePeople enjoy shooting and hunting for a variety of reasons. For some it is the challenge, and the satisfaction of performing a difficult task with mastery. For others the appeal is the camaraderie — the fellowship of other shooters. Some folks enjoy the mechanical aspect — the process of reloading and just “tinkering around with guns”.

For this Editor, one of the main reasons I enjoy shooting is the chance to experience nature — to get away from the city, to a place “far from the madding crowds”. With that spirit in mind, here is an amazing time-lapse video (with music soundtrack) filmed from many vantage points in Yosemite National Park. We challenge you to watch the full video and not long to go out into the “wild places”. As John Muir said: “Going to the woods is going home.”

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. John Muir, The Yosemite (1912)
